Since I’ve departed on my Winded Voyage, I’ve become reacquainted with sayings like “Getting Even Keeled” in the context they originated. In this case getting even keeled really means getting a new balanced keel for Galopin. It hasn’t been easy, but we’re getting there. Daniel, the one that looks like Robert De Niro is back. I plunge deep into my keel pit with a vengeance.
Then good old Bix invites us to his home for Christmas. You’ll see how a typical modern French family celebrates the holy night. And you’ll understand how Bix is trying to find his balance after nearly keeling over. This is in a way the Winded Voyage Christmas special and it keels.
